Probably the will to generalize too much on my part. That said,
(asdf:make '("some-system" "module" "component")) will probably work,
and should probably keep working, even if BUILD-OPERATION has a
default method returning NIL on non-system components.

At some point, I must have believed that going inside systems, instead
of secondary systems, would be the standard way to get things done
that don't involve building everything.
